Format: Paperback
IVF: a patients guide, is a must for anyone considering or undergoing infertility treatments.
I just started my first IVF cycle and cannot imagine where I would be without the information this book provides. Throughout the process, from discovering we needed help to now, having just started injections, this book has been my go to reference. IVF: a patients guide is exactly that, a guide to the (sometimes overwhelming) world of infertility and the tests and treatments necessary and available to you.
Before each doctors appointment, I read through the section(s) that seemed relevant so that I would have informed questions to ask and didn't waste the doctor or my time asking about information which could easily have been obtained elsewhere. After, the doctors visit, I would come home and re-read to cement the information and ensure that the things we were discussing where actually what we wanted to do and where the best option(s) for our circumstances. And then as the beginning of the cycle neared, I would just pick it up and read through the section about the upcoming stage to reassure myself that everything was going to be fine.
When I first realised, I needed some more information to make sure I was making the best decision for myself and my husband, this was one of the only books available which was not just an experience of infertility/ivf, I wanted facts from a Doctor; or a book about dealing with female factor infertility, since we have male factor, those books are not what I was looking for.
I think the knowledge I have gained from this book has made the whole process easier for my husband and myself and I hope that other people are able to ease the uncertainty and take some control over their treatment through the help of this book.
I have only purchased one other book on infertility and IVF treatments as all the information I felt that I needed was contained in IVF: a patients guide.

This book is such a great resource for anyone going through IVF. The author gets down to the science of things and the pictures of what is going on are so helpful. Coming from a medical background I really appreciated this book. And for those not from a medical background it is written in a way everyone can understand. My husband and I are about to go through IVF and will definitely be using this book throughout the process.

Format: Paperback
This book gives you solid, straight answers to all of your questions regarding IVF. I am an acupuncturist who specializes in fertility in Portland, OR and I have learned a lot from this little book. This book is all you will need to get your questions answered. There is a lot of information out there on the internet and you could spend HOURS researching everything. Unfortunately, a lot of that information is not written by experts and can cause a lot of distress in the person trying to find out information. I see this all the time with my patients. I highly recommend moving away from the computer and just going to straight to this book.

This book is a must have for anyone going through or thinking of having IVF. It is written by someone who works in an IVF lab so they know what they are talking about. It has really helped explain things to me and my husband as we go through our current cycle of IVF and fingers crossed we'll soon be parents.

I have gone through a cycle of IVF this year and did not read any books prior to the process. Getting ready to go through another cycle I wanted to get more info and checked out several books. This one so far has been very informative and helps guide me through knowing what questions are important to ask the next time around. Since the author has worked in an IVF lab, she presents not only thorough information but puts it out there in a way that is easy to understand, especially if you have already gone through an IVF cycle already. I would recommend this book for anyone going through IVF.
